Here we go… an entity that isn’t waiting until its investigation is totally complete to begin notifying. I love it!

BRIGHTON, Mass.Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Home for the Little Wanderers (“The Home”) is providing notice of a recent data security event.

On or about December 28, 2020, The Home became aware of usual activity within an employee’s email account. In response, The Home launched an investigation, with the assistance of third-party forensic specialists, to determine the nature and scope of the incident. The investigation determined that certain email accounts were impacted between November 10, 2020 and December 31, 2020; however, the forensic investigation was unable to determine whether any emails and/or attachments were viewed. The Home, in an abundance of caution, began an extensive review of the email accounts to determine whether they contained any personal information and if so, to whom the information relates. This review is ongoing. While the review is ongoing, The Home anticipates information related to individuals will be present within the email accounts and wanted to provide notice of the event while the review is ongoing

On February 26, 2021, The Home began mailing notice letters to affected individuals for whom it has address information and will continue mailing to impacted individuals as more are identified.
